@peachbaby4008: Just don’t tell her any of your ideas. If your family and friends all know how she is then I would shrug it off. They get it.

take it as an opportunity to turn her iont a fool. kill her with kindness. go to her wedding see what she does and make yours bigger and better. im the last of my cousins to get married and since im the black sheep of the family i figured i cant make anyone madder than they already are so im upstagin my older cousins. my venue is better, my food is better, my dress is prettier my centerpeices are better and to make it even better im spending half of what each of their weddings cost. i want people to talk good about my wedding. both of my cousins weddings are stilll talked about but because one had a hideous venue and the other was about 3 hours out of city limits in the middle of no where and everything was expensive and there were no hotels. good things are not said about theres. mine is in the middle of town, at a hotel with several other hotels nearby the venue is very pretty, everything is tactful, there are sdtores of all kinds within walking distance. no one will be inconvenienced by my location at all and its not butt ugly.

 

just kill her with kindness im not even kidding it works and make your wedding bigger and better. dont see it as she stole your venue, think of her wedding as a decoration trial. if her stuff looks like crap you know what not to do.

To be honest i had a friend who was stealing some ideas so i started telling her some crazy stuff My outdoor garden wedding in august the bridesmaids are going to wear dark purple and black floor length dresses and im going to wear this huge HEAVY satin ballgown ect. And so far she has bought that HUGE ballgown and told her brides maids to wear the dresses lol…

I am doing bright summer colors the BMS are wearing knee lenth dresses and I am NOT wearing a huge heavy ballgown in the middle of august lol…

The leading her in the opposite direction idea is pretty funny, though I’m not a fan of lying, no matter how silly. I vote for just not talking wedding stuff with her.

I feel for you! My future sil got engaged 3 months after me, bought her dress a week later and hounded me for not having mine yet. Then setting a date was hard because everyone had something going on this summer. Our original date was last weekend, but we couldn’t do it then because I was told it’s too close to someone’s birthday. I’m not one of those that has had my wedding planned out since childhood, so this has been hell. I found the perfect dress, photographer, and church. Then get criticized because it’s not a huge bash. We’re doing a simple reception at the church. No sit down meal and no alcohol. We are having an after party for our friends since we aren’t leaving for our honeymoon until the following Friday. We couldn’t leave before then because they couldn’t use their miles to pay for the plane tickets after my cousins gave us a week at their vacation house. I’m so fed up.
